Vi - Matching Braces, Brackets, or Parentheses
This is a simple command for jumping to the matching brace, square bracket, or parentheses. For example, it can take you from the beginning of a function to the end with one key stroke. To delete everything between the pairs of {}, [], or (), issue the command: $ d% To replace text between pairs of braces, brackets, or parentheses, issue the command: $ c% You can also use this command to find out if an opening brace has been properly closed.

AWK Calculator

Find files with lines that do not match a pattern
This one would be much faster, as it's only one executed command.

add the result of a command into vi
in command mode, navigate your cursor to the line where you want the command output to appear, and hit "!!". No need to enter edit mode or even type a ":" (colon).

Find usb device
I often use it to find recently added ou removed device, or using find in /dev, or anything similar. Just run the command, plug the device, and wait to see him and only him

tcpdump from src to dst
then open with wireshark

Remove all .svn folders
-depth argument will cause find to do a "depth first" tree search, this will eliminate the "No such file or directory" error messages

Show me just the ip address
Sometimes it's useful to output just the ip address. Or some other information, changing the "ipv4.addresses" in command. The power of awk! Show all possible "greps" with $ nmcli connection show [yourInterfaceNameHere]

extract plain text from MS Word docx files
Tested on MacOS X

Search git logs (case-insensitive)
Normally, searching git log comments is case sensitive. The -i luckily applies to the --grep switch.
